A reminder, and an opportunity

Dear Everyone: This edition of Cereal With Hand-Poured Milk (HPM) will be short and pointed. And although there exists the temptation to berate myself for not producing sparkly new content, I choose to believe I am, in fact, modeling the entire point of this little newsletter. Isn't that a lovely reframe? For all you new subscribers, HPM is your weekly invitation to explore which of the eleventy billion tasks that are consuming your bandwidth you might safely offload (or half-ass) in pursuit of sanity-maintenance. We are all so very busy doing, doing, doing, doing... And we attach a great deal of meaning to that doing. There also is value in BEING. Being still. Being silly. Being playful. Being quiet. Being (dare I say it?) lazy. If you're tired, rest. If you're overwhelmed, cereal is a perfectly acceptable dinner (so long as the milk is hand-poured...). We are not called to tend and mend the entirety of the world's grief and pain, nor are we meant to carry the work alone. Do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
